The Habersham Raider Nation Facebook page recently asked members of Raider Nation, both on and off the field, to share what makes Friday night football special to them. Their quotes are coupled here with photographs by Daniel Purcell.

“There is just nothing like Friday Nights! Seeing everyone come together as a community and support these kids, it’s just very special. Every player only gets so many of these nights, and that’s one of the reasons that each one is so special.” – Benji Harrison, Head Football Coach
“I truly love Friday nights and high school football. It’s an event that the whole community can get involved with.
I believe all high school sports are important. I feel playing sports makes a person well rounded and better prepared for life. The health benefits, teamwork, discipline, work ethic, and the physical & mental toughness are all characteristics that the athlete will never lose. Go Raiders!!” – David Foster, “Voice of the Raiders”
“There is nothing better than being on the sideline on Friday nights! I love being able to be a part of the team and keep these boys healthy!” – Morgan Long, Head Athletic Trainer
“Family. I have come to love this community. The thing I love most is how tightly knit we are. It’s never more clear than when it comes to Raider sports.” – Thomas Burnett, Habersham Area FCA Rep
“Friday nights and raider football to me means more than just a game but a family and having fun with each other and making memories to last a lifetime!” – Kara Daniels, Athletic Trainer
